Is Soy Bad? Is Soy Healthy? Soy is in Everything.

Is Soy Bad? Is Soy Healthy? Soy is in Everything.

Okay. Maybe not everything, but soy can be found in tens of thousands of popular food products. In addition to soy milk and tofu, soy can be found in baby food, baby formula, ice cream, chocolate, bread, protein shakes, meal replacement shakes, soups, sauces, breakfast cereals, canned tuna, protein bars, fast food burgers, fast food pizza, lunch meats, lemonade mix, margarine, spreads, orange juice, ravioli, hot chocolate, bottled fruit juice, dietary supplements and much more.

Why is soy in just about everything? Two Big Reasons:
1. It’s Cheap
2. It can be used to get you hooked.  (see “Effects of MSG? What food is MSG in?http://knockoutweightlossprinciples.com/2012/lose-weight/effects-of-msg-what-food-is-msg-in)

Please allow me to simplify and explain why we are getting such a mixed message about soy. Is soy bad? Is soy healthy? Many messages tout soy as a miracle health food. Many messages tout soy a huge source of disease? Can both be correct?

In general, how we consume soy in the United States is NOT healthy, but for the Japanese it is a big part of their superior health and longevity. Why? What is the difference? Two Big Reasons:
1. Most soy in Japan is fermented. Most soy in the United States is not.
2. Most soy in Japan is whole and organic. Most soy in the United States is genetically modified and processed with heat, pressure and chemical solvents. Most soy in the United States is isolated and not whole.

My recommendation: If you are going to eat soy, then please get organic fermented soy products like miso, tempeh, natto, shoyu and tamari.

Effects of soy when it is not fermented:
• Impairs thyroid function
• Impairs vitamin and mineral absorption
• Impairs digestion because of enzyme inhibitors
• Impairs oxygen absorption
• Has phytoestrogens that can wreak havoc on your hormonal balance

Other Dangers of Soy:
• Can cause pancreatic enlargement
• Can cause cancer
• Can cause DNA and chromosome damage

Read the label. Other names for soy:
• Mono-diglyceride
• Soya
• Soja
• Yuba
• TSF (textured soy flour)
• TSP (textured soy protein)
• TVP (textured vegetable protein)
• Textured plant protein
• Hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP)
• Vegetable protein concentrate
• Vegetable oil
• Vegetable broth
• Boullion
• Natural flavor
• Lecithin
• MSG (monosodium glutamate)

Lower Cholesterol, Prevent Diabetes & Stop Cravings with?

Pectin

Pectin is a type of soluble fiber found in plants. Pectin acts as a binding and jelling agent. This slows down digestion, helping you feel fuller longer. Pectin reduces blood glucose response, lowering your risk for diabetes. Pectin binds with cholesterol and prevents absorption.

Great Sources of Pectin:

  • Citrus Fruit
  • Beans
  • Apples
  • Carrots

Let’s wrap this up with a focus on lemons. In addition to the benefits also mentions, lemons are great for improving your pH and detoxifying your body, including your liver which will improve your ability to metabolize fat.

Recommendation that will help you lose weight and have better digestion: First thing in the morning and about a half an hour before each meal, drink a warn glass of water with a slice of lemon.

 

Low Carb Diet Disaster. Dangers of Low Carb Diets

Low Carb Diet Disaster. Dangers of Low Carb Diets

Is a low carb diet healthy?

Here is some important information you should know about low-carbohydrate diets!

Following a low carb diet is disastrous, dangerous, and above all will set you up to fail by leading you down a path of more frequent cravings and many more colossal cravings!  Carbohydrates are NOT the enemy.  Including the appropriate amounts and types of carbohydrate-rich foods in your diet is essential for long-term health and weight loss/maintenance.

When there is no glucose available for energy, the body starts using protein from food for energy.  Therefore this protein is no longer available for more important functions, such as making new cells, tissues, enzymes, hormones, and antibodies
and the regulation of fluid balance.

When carbohydrates are lacking, the body cannot burn fat in the correct way. Normally carbs combine with fat fragments to be used as energy.  When carbs are not available, there is an incomplete breakdown of fat that produces a by-product
called ketones.  These ketones accumulate in the blood and in the urine causing ketosis, which is an abnormal state.  Ketosis does cause a decrease in appetite because it’s one of the body’s protection mechanisms.  It’s an advantage to someone in a famine (which the body thinks it’s experiencing) to lack an appetite because the search for food would be a waste of time and additional energy.

Due to the lack of energy and the accumulation of ketones, low-carb diets are often accompanied by nausea, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, bad breath, and dehydration.

Because of dehydration and a lack of fiber, constipation can result.

Exercise and fitness performance is reduced on a low-carb diet.  Do not be surprised if your energy level is so low that you cannot make it through your normal workout routine.

When you severely restrict carbs, your consumption of protein and fat increases, which has several long-term effects.  The risk of many cancers increases when fruits, vegetables, whole grain products, and beans are eliminated from the diet.

Protein foods are also high in purines, which are broken down into uric acid. Elevated levels of uric acid in the blood may lead to needle-like uric acid crystals in joints, causing gout.

Kidney stones are more likely to form on high protein, ketosis-producing diets.

Over time, high protein diets can cause a loss of calcium and lead to osteoporosis.

Get lots of healthy carbohydrates from vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, legumes and whole grains.

The more organic and less processed the better. For nuts, beans, legumes and grains, greatly boost their vitamin, energy and enzyme content and make them more digestible by soaking and sprouting.
